Sales Associate in Newmarket, ON

Always something to do at your own pace
I enjoyed being able to do a bit of everything in a store such as cashier, assisting customers, and working in stock. The hours were flexible to accomodate to a student's schedule as a part-time sales associate.

Can be a fun work place if management wasn’t so crazy
I got a job at DSW because I was trying to move away from cash duties at my other I stated in my interview I was not looking for a cash position within 2 days of being on I was “trained” as a cashier since then it’s been abuse from costumers and management 24/7 customers can treat you however they like and management will look the other way if you are up at cash and you aren’t getting enough VIP sign ups you are bashed on by all working supervisors and managers because there is a certain VIP percentage that if we are over for the week the managers get bonuses on their pay checks no one else who actually works on cash will get any benefits from this only the supervisors and managers there is no room to grow as an individual in a store like DSW

My coworkers were great but that’s it.
There was absolutely no room for advancement in this company. My general manger attempted to promote associates on numerous occasions, and was stopped by the district manager because they do not believe in promoting from within. This is a company that does not value reliability or their employees as a whole. Also, there was a very large emphasis put on driving loyalty, and it created a very stressful work environment at times.

Hyper competitive managers create hostility, not growth
My experience with this company was not an ideal experience. I was often thrown onto overnight shift work with no prior requests, made to close then open the next day although living an hour ride away made no difference to the management. No matter if you meet sales goals or gain praise from customers, management will pick you apart for standing in the wrong section, or talking to coworkers during slow times or not meeting their personal standards. This job remains the worst customer service job experience of my entire career.

Very hit or miss
I wasn't always sure whether or not I should be excited to go to work, some days were great and others not so much. The management was forever changing not the people themselves but how they did there jobs you never knew what sort of environment you were walking into. Otherwise, the job itself isn't too difficult and your coworkers are a whole lot of fun it's not a bad first job but not for the long term.

Informal. Why do you want to work here-type questions.

Shared on 20 June 2019

The interview process was an off topic conversation flowing from food to hiking to personal hobbies, the Atkins diet that the interviewer just started and baking. It wasn't that professional and I wish I could answer this better.
